Video Episodes on Channels from Instagram Creators
IGTV is a platform from the folks at Instagram. However, instead of individual posts or Instagram Stories, which combine still images and short video clips, IGTV hosts longer videos, usually centered around one topic. The videos are more like episodes; they are not necessarily specific to something that happened just in one moment in the way Stories are. Educators can create a short vertical video that is up to 10 minutes long and upload it to their IGTV channel right from their phone. Users can access IGTV channels created by the accounts they follow right from Instagram. Alternatively, they can download the separate IGTV app for iOS or Android, where they can access all of the videos from people they follow.
